Eating at Angelina Paris is like treating us with a teatime in a London palace or taste gelatos and pizzas in Italy. If tourists are crazy about this Parisian institution it’s because it embodies our wonderful capital, its love for good things and sophistication. To be sure of it, we decide to treat us with a lunch break at Angelina, facing the Tuileries. And it’s perfect since the house has many novelties for this year!
At Angelina, you can have a quick lunch from 11:45 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. After a long hesitation between the bagel, the generous club sandwiches, the grilled cheese and the scrambled eggs with truffle, we finally look at the mixed salads and the lunch set menu (dish of the day + mini pastries + hot drink), served from Monday to Friday and from 11:45 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We finally go for an Angelina Salad with smoked salmon (smoked salmon from Scotland, fresh goat cheese, avocado, tomatoes on the vine, grapefruit, romaine lettuce, lemon-flavored vinaigrette with cold pressed virgin olive oil) and a Rivoli Salad (half-cooked tuna, runner beans, quail eggs, spring onions, roseval potatoes, tomatoes on the vine, Kalamata olives, sucrine lettuce, lemon-flavored vinaigrette with cold pressed virgin olive oil), both are healthy and delicious, served with a cocktail full of vitamins (orange, carrot, ginger).
Undoubtedly, we shall go back to Angelina for brunch – served every day during the week – as well as for teatime and breakfast! Who would say no to the pleasure of drinking your first coffee of the day in such a beautiful place?
In the meantime, we enjoy the house new pastries: the salted butter caramel éclair (maybe too strong in terms of caramel), and the fantastic Sissi (macaron cookie, light vanilla cream, raspberry heart, white chocolate petals, fresh red berries), light and sweet at the same time.
Another novelty, Angelina’s revisited specialty: the lemon Mont Blanc we’re eager to taste next time!
